Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."
Pros: "Nothing, I pay for premium economy and can’t use the partnerships lounge—what’s the point!"
Cons: "Nothing, I pay for premium economy and can’t use the partnerships lounge—what’s the point!"
Pros: "Quality of interior"
Pros: "I’ll lile it all"
Cons: "My foot rest didn’t extend all the way up, button was broken"
Pros: "Excellent customer service !! Great crew down the back !!! (Except they didn’t want to take my banana peel when collecting rubbish?). Will have to carry off plane which is annoying ?!?"
Cons: "Entertainment system not working for our row of seats"
Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."
Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Pros: "Flight was late 30 mins"
Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."
Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"
Pros: "Crew member Trevor was funny and the perfect host. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and there is no privacy ... worst Business class facilities I’ve ever experienced. Seriously substandard might as well fly economy or better still use a different airline."
Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."
Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"
Pros: "New business layout is more comfortable comfortable and private."
Cons: "Dash 8 looked tried. Seats need an update"
Pros: "Really nice hostesses. Professional, friendly, interested in travellers. Very welcome when you're travelling home after a long day."
Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Pros: "Fantastic cabin crew and fantastic maître’d in the first class lounge at Melb International airport. Honestly the best service we have ever received from start to finish from Qantas. Thank youalso the vegetarian and vegan meals were great unlike previous years. Thanks again"
Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"
Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"
Pros: "Typical great Qantas customer service and safety"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"
Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."
Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "A cut above all others"
Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"
Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."
Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"
Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Pros: "The design of the storage on the back of the seat in front is very clever and makes a huge difference - e.g. foot rest The entertainment system is very good Food was excellent for plane food"
Pros: "The crew manager worked tirelessly to move rows of passengers to other seats because the entertainment system didn't work for a bank of passengers on the long haul flight."
Cons: "Our entertainment system didn't work and we had to split up to move seats."
Pros: "Crew were amazing!"
Cons: "You misled people not telling I have to pay for luggage"
Pros: "Mediocre flight and service"
Cons: "Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English."

Pros: "Business Class, seat 1L. Comfortable flight. Arrived well rested."
Pros: "Yes, they did"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew; very efficient and timely boarding; surprisingly good meals"
Pros: "There was an empty seat next to mine and that made the trip bearable!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and ample food selection (especially for snacks)."
Pros: "The crew was amazing in business class - very friendly and helpful. Best flight I've ever been on!!"
Cons: "There was no wifi on the plane but I know LATAM is working on getting that. Other than that, it was perfect."
Pros: "Business class is nice and comfortable with LATAM"
Cons: "More choices for the mains would be great"
Pros: "Good crew. Pretty new and clean airplane."
Cons: "I would like to know and would have booked A little more than 2 hours time in transiting at the airport; since we had to wait and retreive our luggage, re-check in, get boarding pass, and go through security checkpoint again."
Pros: "Leg room and seat spacing were great"
Cons: "Flight could’ve been on time and luggage delivered to passengers in a timely manner."
Pros: "They were very kind!"
Cons: "Probably the space we need more room, so we could stretch our legs and be more comfy!"
Pros: "The plane left on time. My LATAM flight to Sydney on Wednesday 12 September was cancelled and I missed a meeting that day in Sydney as a result."
Cons: "We fly during lunch time and were only serviced a snack. Something more substantial would have been in order."
Pros: "Staff were excellent, food was ok"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft are terribly uncomfortable. Our three hour flight was awful. Narrow thin seat enable more passengers to be crammed in. Great for Latam’s profit but terrible for thief customers. I’d never fly on an A321 again if I could avoid i."
Cons: "We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards."
Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"
Pros: "Was cold so requested a blanket, was told we will see ..Blankets were given to passengers in the front seat but I was ignored. I usually carry a warm scarf so do not need airline blankets."
Cons: "No issues will travel on this airline again."
Pros: "LATAM is now a budget airline - don't expect any comfort, quality service or food"
Cons: "Too many people have carry on baggage that is too big, no space left in the overhead bins for those boarding last. Seats are too narrow, even for a person that is not particularly big."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, comfortable and well laid out."
Cons: "Some of the staff had a problem with English enunciation which makes it very difficult for aging passengers to understand"
Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"
Pros: "There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother."
Cons: "We had 4 hours of delay, 3 of them waiting on the plane"
Pros: "Awesome service, friendly staff and the Dreamliners are amazing. Thanks LATAM and thanks Kayak ... Great fares."
Pros: "Having to download an app to have access to the entertainment was a big inconvenience."
Pros: "crew! just awesome"

Pros: "There was nothing special"
Cons: "Staff attitude food"
Pros: "I love this airline! Service, planes, food."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and confusing, no where to sit at gate."
Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"
Pros: "good flight. Good lounge in Santiago. Flight staff very good"
Cons: "Lounge food not as good as BA or Qantas. Only hot food was some sausage roll / vegetable rolls. Only sandwiches and filled rolls"
Pros: "Despite being closed out of my flight, LATAM made it relatively inexpensive to change my flight to the next day. But, flying on other airlines out of Santiago, there is really no need to close the flight one hour before flight time. This is a LATAM policy only. I should have been on that flight. My return flight was delayed 3 hours. Go figure."
Cons: "Arrived 50 min before flight, but it was closed and was forced to pay a change fee and arrive 2 days later to Easter Island. There was still plenty of time for me to make that flight, but LATAM's policy of closing flights 1 hr before flight time really screwed me."
Pros: "I like the fact that LATAM is part of the One World alliance"
Cons: "The check-in process was chaotic and they have lost my luggage even though it was a direct flight."
Pros: "The stewardesses were great. Great service. Both trips we thought the service was the best we have seen."
Cons: "They had difficulty getting the bags on the turnstile but I think that was more an airport problem in santiago. Check in in Punta Arenas was very slow. Sky airlines processed twice the number of people in the same time"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"
Cons: "They lost my bag, which I didn't get back until my return trip home. I planned a week long hiking expedition and LATAM lost my hiking pack. I had to then rent all my gear. I was very very disappointed in their ability to keep track of my checked bag. When I arrived at my destination they had no idea where my bag was. It took days for anyone to contact me about if my pack was found or not. I will be avoiding this airline from now on if possible."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delayed disembarking"
Pros: "Comfortable seats on plane, good food. Good selection of in flight movies and television shows."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been a bit more organized, but it is a small airport and the general line moved quickly."
Pros: "The LATAN costumee service was very kind and professional."
Cons: "I went to Argentina to spend 4 days with my family, wich I didn't see for 2 years. I arrived to Mendoza. I wait until the last suitcase shows. Any of my suitcases arrived. I spent another hour making the complain. I had to come back to the airport in the evening and spent another hour for my baggages. Unfortunate i waist my first day in the airport and only spent 3 days with my family. Also the day that I had to return to USA the LATAN fly was late 1 and a half hour."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Flight from Osorno to Valdivia was delayed, then flight from Valdivia to Santiago was delayed. But they told me I would be OK making my connecting flight in Mexico City (next flight was Santiago to Mexico City)... wrong! I wasn't even close to making my connection."
Cons: "Latam Flight was delayed for maintenance and notice was not given via email/text or call. Desk agent pointed at paper taped on desk and asked us to read about the delay vs telling us what to expect."
Pros: "While I had no problem on this flight, my dealings with Latam agents in phone and in person have been horrific. I had to purchase a new ticket and dealing with them was terrible - long hold times for simple questions, incorrect ticketing, lack of empathy or service attitude. Fly Aerolieas instead."
Pros: "Space between seats"
Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"
Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."
Cons: "Food was average. I got a chicken sandwich. It was cold (meant to be a cold sandwich) and not particularly tasty. Also, there was limited range of drinks. I asked for tomato juice and this was not available."
Pros: "New Airplane and a lot leg room"
Pros: "Friendly people and good service."
Cons: "The only bad part was it took nearly an hour to get our luggage. Other flights with LAN seemed more reasonable."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The crew seemed to ish they were somewhere else. I was in business class and had to beg for a drink after an hour of flying."
Pros: "yes seats were more comfortable and more leg room than the other airlines I have used"
Cons: "It was all pretty good and despite leaving a little late we got there on time"
Pros: "This was a long flight for us but the entertainment and food options were great and kept us comfortable the whole time."

Pros: "Very good crew. Friendly. Smiling. Helpful. Short flight. 50 min."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Pros: "Excellent service I don’t have nothing to say was amazing"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly staff"
Cons: "Filth plane"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Crew members seemed drunk and kept stepping on my foot that wasn't in the aisle and pumping into me, boarding was 2 hours late with no communication, food service was poor, hard to get water and disboarding was unorganized. I've taken many bad flights and this was by far the worst and most of is was the terrible attitudes and behaviors of the crew."
Cons: "Seats were so tight and uncomfortable. This was an 8+ hour flight and it was so hard to rest."
Pros: "The crew made the flight quite pleasant"
Pros: "The movie selection."
Cons: "2 hours stuck on the plane before leaving from London to Columbus, in flight entertainment had to be restarted twice on same flight. I missed my connection to Madrid from Chicago because the airline lost the plane that was already at Chicago. My luggage arrived in Lyon 3 days late and I was never given any information on reimbursement for the clothes and toiletries I had to buy."
Cons: "BA took us onboard, flew us 40 minutes into Frankfurt and they decided there was a mechanical problem and returned back into Heathrow. The next plane did not arrive until 5 hours later, which lead to missing the connection flight. We were asking for updates and nobody knew anything. We asked to be changed to different airline and they could even do that. They did not compensate or pay anything, which is unacceptable. Horrible customer service."
Cons: "Couple of flight attendants had a terrible attitude."
Cons: "food / leg room / in-flight entertainment / no wifi / no plugs for electronics - everything was missing and horrible."
Pros: "Will use the service again"
Cons: "Yes love the journey"
Pros: "wonderful crew, good enough food, wide entertainment, seats as good as can be expected, great plane, great flight, great crew, on time and safe and arrived in good spitrits"
Cons: "as always, rather crowded, seats rather tight,"
Pros: "Texting about lost bag, fast information"
Cons: "There not enough time for right connections if always delayed, bags are not at the destinatiion, no drinking water without ovepriced purchase on the plane from London to Prague,"
Cons: "Super tight seating on the plane. Terrible customer service at checkin in Lanzarote. there was a weather issue the day prior and hundreds of travelers were stranded. The baggage belt was backed up and therefore the staff couldn’t check in more travelers. This, we learned, not from the staff, but from walking around and noting the stacks of luggage etc Far better would have been for them to inform the 200 or so people that were waiting in line for 1 hour. You must pay for anything on the flight. A small bag of peanuts or such would be nice."
Pros: "Crew were cooperative"
Cons: "There were no veg sandwiches."
Cons: "This was in coach class, so I understand the cramped quarters, but even on a long haul flight (BA 49, LHR-SEA), how could they justify the seating in the planes? Perhaps BA executives should fly coach class on one of these planes to understand what they are putting their customers up to. Here are 2 additional items that should be a no-brainer to fix: a) They ran out of fresh bottled water. For the last one hour, all they could offer was sparkling water b) Somehow BA seem to be saving on food portions (or their caterer needs to be changed) - lunch/dinner portions are way too small."
Pros: "The crew, all the way around were very attentive & courteous, food was great!"
Cons: "I was completely satisfied with this airline, would use again!"
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Boarding took an extremely long time because of added security measures that did not have prior warnings."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and quite confortable. The crew was friendly and professional as per BA standards(you never disappointed me)."
Cons: "Food was quite poor and not quite as much as I wished. So far Turkish has the best food for me. Poor quality of movies."
Cons: "I expected a complementary bar service however you had to pay."
Cons: "90 minutes delay for a 1 hour flight. They blamed the weather but no other flights were delayed except this one. Also, I purchased a seat with no checked baggage allowance and was NOT aware of this when I booked. Will not be flying British Airways again."
Pros: "everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Good crew communications. Polite service. Good food"
Cons: "Poor ventilation - too hot."
Cons: "Seats are ver very bad no good food no good Sevres"
Cons: "The "complimentary" drinks weren't complimentary, as you had to pay for them"
Pros: "Able to get a flight next day. However, I paid to reserve seats, and did not get offered a reimbursement!"
Cons: "No food or snacks offered."
Pros: "The wide variety of movies"
Cons: "No options for break fast on the last rows, and I get the feeling the Snack Menu rans out pretty quickly"
Cons: "We missed our flight because of boarding in U.K. Airport because of the employer new and didn't know instruction to enter pr card number and when she get it birding was closed , really its bad thing"
Pros: "The cabin crew were exceptional. One flight attendant in parifular was extremely helpful to us in helping place our carry on luggage in the overhead compartment. I did not get his name but he told me he was from Spain."
Cons: "- Landing cards were only distributed 20 minutes before arrival. The seat belt sign was already on. So, I could not use the food tray to fill out the cards. I tried to use the magazine to put under the landing card, but there was some turbulence and I could not fill out the cards n the plane. Cards should be passed to passengers an hour after Akef off. - no gifts given to kids like small games or coloring crayons to keep them busy. - food took hours to serve and was not comparable to BA's image. - the water pressure in the toilet's wash basin was too strong and was splashing all over my cloths."
Cons: "The BA agent Giles, was rude and spoke to us condescending. His inept handling of rescheduling my family caused us to not only be split up in our flight from London to Vienna, but the majority of us had to wait 10 hours for the next flight. He could've rescheduled us together, but instead he ignored my sister's request to do so, rudely told us to get back in line, and rescheduled another family on the same flight as my sister, thus eliminating our seats together, and forcing her to travel alone."
Pros: "Not much. Very small plane. Only one bathroom on the back in the galley! Impossible to get in most of the flight because of service carts."
Cons: "Food service extremely slow. M&s choices looked good but the crew had their hands full trying to deliver. Too bad"
Pros: "The entertainment and the service"
Cons: "Both legs delayed, almost missed connection due to delay and the crew on the flight didn't seem to care. When we asked if they could inform the next flight that our flight wasn't delayed, the stewards response was "our planes don't wait for anyone". Real friendly. Wish Southwest flew to Europe!!!!"
Pros: "It went by quickly"
Pros: "the friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Great movies, smooth flight, everyone was polite"
Pros: "I liked the service, the affordable flight and the food"
Cons: "The booking said Finnair, but it was with American airlines going to England and then with British airways going home to Chicago. It wasn't clear where to check in, or which website to go to. please be more clear regarding which airlines to check in and which airline we will be using."
Pros: "my luggage was lost and it took 3 days to get it back I had no clothes , so I had no choice to buy new clothes"
Pros: "I liked the demeanor of the crew that I interacted with and I appreciated the updates from the pilot since we were delayed into London and I had a quick connection."
Cons: "The breakfast option ran out by the time the crew got to me in the middle of the plane. The delay was nerve-wracking with the very close connection to my international flight."
Cons: "The seats and the conglomeration at boarding time."
Cons: "Poor queuing system Very poor food Four hour trip and they only served a pack of crisps and a juice glass No other choice, no option to purchase you stay hungry and thirsty till the end"
Cons: "I know this was economy but the seats are the tightest of any other airline. We were all practically on top of each other for a relatively long flight."
Pros: "As a first time flight using BA, I was very impressed, and felt I received good value for money."
Cons: "I did not like the policy of paying to assign yourself a seat ($51 per seat) unless you do it online 24 hours prior to your flight - which I chose to do. I understand in the current business climate of paying for better seats, but nickle and diming plain Jane economy seats is unacceptable."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Free meal Option to check luggage to final destination or to layover point Staff professional apart from closing desks."
Cons: "Self check in machine slow - crashed while printing boarding pass Massive queue at check in and bag drop counter Staff closed check in desks despite long queue No easy way to get from hotel to airport Only flight map on overhead screens"
Pros: "The choice of new movies!"
Cons: "On my side crew lady was almost rude, for sure not friendly nor smiling. A lot of space for improvement there."
Pros: "Crew was good. I slept and they didn't bother me."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Cons: "They should let you know, at booking time, that seat 35J is smaller than the rest of seat in Economy class"
Cons: "American airlines conection left us behind. Have to wait 24 h for next flight in Dallas Airport DFW with no assistance of any kind, because of "weather conditions". It a shame, never again American Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! And the seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The over weight passenegers need to keep their arms and elbows, within their seat space. And not been inconsiderate and turn a light on at night, while they are sleeping and the other person next to them, is not, because of it!!"
Cons: "Full plane with no Main Cabin Extra seats left over = painful flight for someone over 6 feet."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."
Pros: "High end entertainment system."
Cons: "Didn’t like the food. Could be better comparing to other airlines. There was no film that I wanted to see..."
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."
Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."
Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."
Cons: "The crew on the way to Sydney was a little more present. There was always someone milling in the galley between the business class and premium economy cabin. The crew returning came through the cabin often and were attentive if you asked for them but you had to seek them out."
Cons: "The food is very tasty, but AA has not changed the menu in at least one year."
Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."
Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."
Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."
Pros: "El embarque fue rápido y ordenado."
Cons: "El vuelo fue operado por American Airlines. Era un 777 viejo, con pantallas antiguas, servicio de entretenimiento pobre, con películas que no se podían iniciar cuando uno quería."
Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "My flight was first class."
Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."
Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless."
Cons: "Food choices were horrible as was the food quality. Especially for an international flight. AA should be embarrassed that this is the level by which they operate. Entertainment systems were faulty. Many around me had to be restarted. And crew seemed tired and irritated. Willing to overlook the chairs that barely reclined but with everything else operating at a poor level, it was just the icing on the cake."
Pros: "Overall, it was a decent flight. Tucked way in the back, but no major issues."
Cons: "One flight attendant spent the majority of the flight flirting with the guy behind me. Another had a voice so loud that I could hear him through my earplugs and Bose headphones while trying to sleep on the overnight flight. I also don't like that I booked with Qantas and ended up on an American flight."
Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."
Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."
Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"
Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."
Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."
Cons: "Me cambiaron de asiento arbitrariamente, yo hice check in 24 horas antes para escoger los asientos que me acomodaban a mí y mi acompañante de 12 años ( los primeros) y resulta que por un cambio de avión me dieron los últimos al lado del baño. Lo que fue horrible, el olor, los pasajeros haciendo fila al lado de mi asiento todo el tiempo, sin poder descansar o estar tranquila. Comprendo que pueden haber descompuestos en el avión y cambiarlo por otro pero al menos al re asignar asientos deberían ver los lugares iniciales que tenía cada uno y no dejar a quienes habían solicitado con anticipación los primeros en el último, literalmente en los últimos puestos. Además la comida es bastante mala."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "I like the entertainment."
Cons: "Food and distribution of the food. Unfortunately on my flight the flight attendant was so busy that forgot to come back for the water/coffee drinks."
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"
Pros: "Ok entertainment. "Bar" setup in the middle galley (water and juice) was nice."
Cons: "The seats are so very narrow that having extra legroom doesn't really matter - only a child or a very, very thin person will find these seats anywhere near adequate. Food (which went flying or falling into my lap as I tried to eat without elbowing my neighbor) was laughably bad, even the crew said they were embarrassed to be serving it. On that note, the crew did not seem happy with the airline, and agreed that economy on the 788 is one of the worst cabins they fly. Entertainment options were good, but when the person in front of you reclines, so does the screen, so if you want to stay more upright you can't really see the screen well. By far one of the worst economy experiences I have ever had. I will go out of my way to chose alternate routes in the future, even going via MIA to avoid the 788."
Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."
Pros: "The people were amazing. They were the sweetest people and were so eger to learn. I have never been so neverous. We experienced a place where I need to help the ppl of the island and hopefully make the experience better. Fijians are so generous and amazing I will be back"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and lots of leg room in the priority seat I purchased in advance"
Cons: "Very bad food"
The flight attendants went through the cabin three times with drinks and/or food on a 11 and 1/2 hour flight. They didn’t hand out bottled water. Not even a snack was offered in an eight hour period.
Boarding was so chaotic. Seats are way too small. When deboarding the plane, no one gave instructions and it was more chaotic than boarding. Pretty disappointed in the lack of diversity in the crew as well.
Pros: "So few people aboard. Allowed for great service by flight crew."
Cons: "Catering in COVID era leaves a lot to be desired."
Pros: "The flight attendant was amazing. She was friendly, courteous and went out of her way to make my flight very enjoyable."
Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"
Pros: "Movies and drinks"
Cons: "More frequent service"
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Better wheelchair services. Fended for ourselves."
Cons: "You need to spell out that when you purchase a BASIC ECONOMY fair, you will be charged for luggage and cannot change your seat. This isn't all spelled out in big bold letters when you buy on Kayak and the carrier treats you bottom of the class."
Cons: "Get seated in a seat i paid extra 37$ for .very disappointed"
Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."
Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"
Pros: "Once aboard, everything except the staff and entertainment sucked. Will never fly United again."
Cons: "Seat are horrible. I moved to the back of the plane because even that was better than being stuck in my assigned seat. The food was yuck. Once served, the plane went dark. A crappy sandwich was served mid-flight. 90 minutes before landing at approx 2pm local time, we were served breakfast. WTF?"
Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Pros: "Flight crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Tiny dirty old smelly plane. Freezing cold. No blankets. Flight was also an hour late. No food."
Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."
Pros: "Great staff, pleasant flight, nice options on the screen to choose from, etc."
Cons: "Old plane----moldy and smelly."
Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Long flights should have something edible."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Landing was not smooth"
Pros: "The plane & crew were fine Loved the Business-Economy seating & staff & food..,"
Cons: "The change from scheduled Lufthansa to United was disappointing. Since I had no access to my email in Germany, I did not learn about the change until I reached the LH check-in & had to find United check-in. The flight was late getting into Newark which made me miss my connecting flight. Was back in economy & hated the food. *"
Pros: "Newark Airport is great and the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "Clean, on time, professional crew."
Cons: "I wish there were more bathrooms available for the economy class."
Pros: "Ability to move me on the flight swiftly."
Cons: "Layover was minimal backseat of short time from one flight to next terminal."
Cons: "internet & movies intermittently worked"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "All the United personnel from gate agents to pilot and crew were very nice and pleasant and friendly. They seemed to take pride in their work."
Cons: "I am tall (6' 4") and the seats are still too cramped. Would a 1/2" more really lose millions of dollars per year. Stop treating people like sardines."
Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants at united make everything super easy. I'm an anxious person when I get to the airport but I know that if I have any questions the united airlines crew will take care of me. The pilots are amazing and airways land the plane smoothly."
Pros: "Lovely helpful crew."
Cons: "Fee for WiFi & for any kind of entertainment. Also mild confusion with boarding- -stood outside plane for several minutes. Difficult to hear when we were supposed to board."
Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."
Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Pros: "The people were friendly and everything went smoothly even with a little computer malfunction they got us in the air on time. Thoroughly enjoyed the the experience."
Cons: "We had no complaints."
Pros: "Larger plane, great comfort. Nice staff!"
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi, nothing to look at during flight."
Cons: "It was the last seat of the plane, didn't recline smelled the bathroom..very uncomfortable for 4 hors and stunk"
Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
Pros: "It was timely, and the flight attendant was wonderful!"
Cons: "I specifically booked my trip based on a 6 HR travel time. Because I was re-routed, it tacked another 4 hrs onto my trip time. I could have driven to where I was going for a fraction of the cost. It's so frustrating to fly now a days, the massive crowds, grumpy airline workers and delayed flights. I'm going to start driving more... Sick of the hassle with commercial flights."
Pros: "Nice crew, good flight."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi, short flight so not big issue"
Pros: "They were able to book another direct flight for me"
Cons: "I had to wait 6 hours before they informed us that the flight would be canceled. They kept delaying the flight instead of proactively booking passengers on other flights."
Pros: "The timing of the flight for Tuesday night was right I don't have that much delays !!!"
